Lewis: Kings need more traffic in front of Lundqvist

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 1:12 AM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

NEW YORK -- I think the Rangers came out more desperate than us tonight.

We knew they would be, and we definitely need to raise our desperation level if we want to close this series. We were still in the game going into the third period, but just couldn't get one past [Henrik] Lundqvist.

There was a lot of positive talk on the bench. We were trying to keep everyone going, trying to keep going and keep getting pucks to the net. We wanted to do everything you can to try and get one in there.

Kings rue missed opportunities in Game 4

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 12:39 AM / Winning Ingredients

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Henrik Lundqvist put forth a world-class performance Wednesday night. But the New York Rangers' goaltender had a little help from his teammates, as well as a dash of the 'puck luck" that eluded the Eastern Conference champions in the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final.

That luck was epitomized with 1:11 remaining in a third period dominated by the Los Angeles Kings when left wing Tanner Pearson redirected a shot that squeaked through Lundqvist's pads, only to die right on the goal line. In a mad scramble, Rangers center Derek Stepan managed to push the puck under his goaltender and get a whistle.

That came after Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman denied Jeff Carter what appeared to be an easy tap-in with 8:10 left in the first period. With the puck laying on the goal line, Stralman got his stick on top of Carter's and prevented the Kings center from scoring what would have been his 11th goal of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kings fans have to wait at least 1 more game for Cup

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 12:38 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Tracey Kenney and Merry Cheers took a selfie standing in front of a barren plaza at L.A. Live, across from Staples Center. They were among hundreds of disappointed Kings fans pouring out of bars and restaurants at the sports and entertainment district Wednesday night.

"We just took a picture of ourselves with this emptiness in the back, showing how we feel in our heart," Cheers said. "An empty party zone reflects the emptiness in our hearts. This is a total 180 [degree turn] of how we were going to be right now. But we're rooting for it.

"We have hope knowing that they're going to bring it back home."

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 8:25 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Nashville Predators general manager David Poile is doing his best to put to rest any rumors that he might be looking to trade captain Shea Weber, who is a Norris Trophy finalist this season.

"We're keeping him, we're building our franchise around him," Poile said from the NHL general managers' meeting Wednesday. "I think we've got one of the best young defenses in the League. I think he's got an excellent chance of winning the Norris Trophy in 11 or 12 days from now. Why wouldn't we build our team around him? That's exactly what we're doing."

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 7:52 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Ottawa Senators captain Jason Spezza has asked to be traded, general manager Bryan Murray said Wednesday.

Murray, speaking after the NHL general managers meeting, said he will try to accommodate the request from the 30-year-old center.

"I don't want to trade the guy, really, and I know I won't get the value, in all likelihood, that I should get for him," Murray said. "But I think that Jason feels maybe there's a change that he would like to have happen, and if that's the case we'll try to do what we can."

GMs back Competition Committee recommendations

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 7:21 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The NHL's general managers held their annual meeting during the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday and granted their support to the recommendations made by the League's Competition Committee earlier this week, which include changes to the rules for overtime, faceoffs after icings, the configuration of the faceoff circles, increasing the size of the trapezoid behind the net and more stringent measures for embellishment offenses.

The recommendations still have to be approved by the NHL Board of Governors and the NHL Players Association Executive Board before becoming official. The Board of Governors meets in New York on June 26. The Executive Board meets July 16-19 in Pebble Beach, Calif.

The GMs first discussed these changes at their annual meetings in March.
